We selected this site as it was near to friends and places of interest. We booked 7 nights. We also picked it as it had a bar and restaurant on site.....we were advised pre arrival that the pool was closed due to covid but we were disappointed to learn that the bar and restaurant would be open only on Fri and Sat . We still had to pay the full site fees. On a more positive note staff very helpful and friendly and toilets shower block clean and plenty of hot water....Read less.

We happened to stumble across the bucklegrove website whilst searching for a staycation 2021. The prices seemed good and the location was great to different attractions such as longleat safari Park and Weston-super-Mare. We decided that the addition of a hot tub with the lodge was a great bonus and booked straight away. When we arrived we arrived at 4 30pm and was slightly concerned that check in wasn't until 5pm however we needn't have worried as we were able to check in and head straight to the lodge. Once there we quickly discovered lodge 1 and how lovely it was especially compared to some other larger companies who are a lot more expensive. The play park for the children was great and our daughter loved building her confidence on the equipment and it was so well maintained. The hot tub was great and was used every day we were there! Some others have commented that the maintenance team come early on a morning to clean and maintain the hot tub but this was never an issue for us and even if they did come they were very quick and discreet in their work. If we did have to comment on anything it would be that lodge 1 could do with the velux windows cleaning inside and out and also they could do with a new kettle but these are only comments and not complaints as it is very hard to complain about something you found so great! This was just the break me and my family needed thank you bucklegrove....Read less.

The site is well located for north Somerset. It is on the whole well maintained with everything you need for a camping holiday. Most of the pitches are a good size and well maintained although some of those in the Grove could do with a bit of a tidy. Grove toilet block best described as functional and adequate but again could do with a tidy up. However we did stay right at the end of a busy half term so to be fair it wasn't easy to tidy the pitches and the toilet block was being well used....Read less.

No problem with the location, facilities and how helpful the staff were, only con, is that we thought the pitch was a little on the small side.

In general the park is clean and the staff are fantastic. However ourselves and the children were very disappointed with the lack on things to do. The pool and games room was closed - which we were not made aware of. Leaving only the park, which I would say I suitable for children up to around 6-7 years of age.

Due to the lack of things to do we had to go out of the park and spend money on things we hadn’t planned. I feel the cost of the stay at the park during this time was massively overpriced considering it is essentially only somewhere to pitch up.

If all facilities were open, which I know they are on most of the other parks, I would say it was good value. Unfortunately this time we left disappointed and probably wouldn’t return....Read less.

We had a lovely weekend stay at Bucklegrove. The staff were very helpful and friendly.

The showers, toilets and washing up areas were very clean as was the whole site.

The play area was good for smaller children but unfortunately there were a lot of older children using it which put ours off using it.

The food at the Lodge was very good.

The only downside was some other campers up drinking way past 11 being very loud and some children on bikes riding close to our pitch past 10pm shouting.

Overall we would recommend....Read less.

The only thing I would like to see would be a playing field area for ball games for the older kids. With the site being situated away from the main towns. Not much for the 15 years old to do.

The site is well laid out and the little playpark and dinosaur trail was fun for the kids. However we were disappointed that the pool was not open (appreciate restrictions but felt this could have been organized) and yet there was no discount on the price considering this is a key factor for paying a little more for this site. The wash facilities and showers were very well maintained and cleaned and we liked the privacy of the pitches for the campervans however it did feel like tents and units had been rammed in and looked camped with a fair bit of noise in the evenings until fairly late. Its a good site for kids running around and enjoying themselves but less so if you want a peaceful evening....Read less.

Spent a week in May, overall quite good, but let down slightly by attention to detail. Grass was not cut either before we arrived or whilst we were there. Bar and cafe were only open Friday and Saturday night although this was made clear before we booked. Toilet block was very clean but very dated. We arrived as a couple but immediately apparent that the site is set up for families with children and on night before we departed, kids were running about screaming at 22:45.

Whilst the park is set out brilliantly, especially for families, it is very expensive and doesn’t justify the spend. Understandably, facilities were limited due to covid, but the price did not reflect that. The picnic benches are in need of maintenance. And whilst outdoor is the only option, some heaters wouldn’t go a miss. There are a lot of seasonal pitch holders here, and some of them don’t create the best atmosphere. Lovely little Dino trail. Pathways need maintenance. Husband tells me the Elsan point was the worst we’ve experienced so far. Bins were also not fun to negotiate.

Pros for us (retired couple) that out of season, entertainment was not open so it was very quiet. Good location off main road between Cheddar and Wells.

Biggest disadvantage for us was busy dangerous road so it was impossible to walk from site and we had to drive every time.

It would be a nice site for families in summer season

Bucklegrove Holiday Park was a very lovely peaceful park to stay and we felt very safe considering covid restrictions still applied. We were greeted by a very friendly young man who explained all about the facilities still remaining closed and the things we could do. The site was really well cared for and clean. I cannot comment on the Bar/Cafe or swimming pool as they were still closed. It was very convenient to have a bus stop right outside and we took advantage of the run around ticket so visit Wells and Western Super Mare so no parking worries with the camper van. We will definitely return later in the year when all the facilities are open.
